Best Canister VacuumsBest Canister Vacuum Cleaners – This is a roundup of the best rated canister vacuums currently available. Canister vacuums have traditionally been ideal for hard surface floors (tile, hardwood floors, stone), and low pile carpet or rugs. These type of vacuums store dirt in two ways, bagged or bagless. Bagless vacuums such as Dyson use Cyclonic technology to keep the filter clean. Both bagged and bagless can have HEPA filtration to prevent what you are vacuuming from getting in the air you breath. All Miele Vacuums are sound insulated and have power settings that can make their canisters quieter than other brands. Both Dyson and Miele canisters have strong suction for pet hair removal. Below are the top 2013-2014 canister vacuums listed with top features, and reviews.

Glossary of Terms
Bagless Vacuum = A bagless vacuum stores dirt and dust in its onboard dust bin which is detachable, so you can take the dust bin to your trash can, to empty it. You do not need to purchase bags. Most bagless vacuum require you to clean the filter from time to time.
Bagged Vacuum = A bagged vacuum stores all the dirt and dust in a disposable bag. Some are self sealing (Miele), so that dust does not go everywhere when you remove the bag. Bagged vacuums usually have a larger capacity to store dirt and dust than Bagless Vacuums. The filtration system is built-in to the bag.
HEPA Filter/HEPA Option = A HEPA filter is the best type of dirt filtration on a vacuum. This will remove the smallest particles of dirt, dust, and pet hair so that you don’t breathe in what you are vacuuming. This is especially important for those with allergies. Some vacuums have a HEPA filter option, where you can upgrade it to HEPA by buying an optional filter.
Cyclonic = Cyclonic vacuums lift dust in the dust bin, and prevent the filter from clogging. This applies only to Bagless vacuums.
Hardwood Floor Brush = Some Miele canister vacuums come with an extra parquet hardwood floor brush, with soft bristles to clean hardwood floors.
Handle Brush Control = This allow you to control the rotating brush on your cleaning head from your handle, instead of bending over to turn the brush on and off.
Power Settings = Miele brand gives you 6 power settings on a rotary knob. The lower the setting the quieter the vacuum, and a lower suction setting is better for delicate fabrics, rugs, and drapes. Other vacuums give you
some control of the suction (variable), but will not quiet the vacuum like the Miele Vacuums do (Miele lowers suction by slowing the motor).
Automatic Cord Rewind = A convenience feature that allows you to press a button and a reel will automatically roll up the cord inside the vacuum.
Extension Hose = A vacuum with an extension hose, allows you to vacuum not only the carpet or floor, but to vacuum upholstery, drapes, stairs, and walls. All Canisters have this option.
Mini Turbo Tool = Dyson Animal Vacuums include a mini turbo tool to vacuum upholstery, car seats, and other areas. This is especially useful for removing pet hair.
Stainless Steel Wand = Miele Vacuums use stainless steel for their wands, and not cheaper metals seen on other brands, for long-term durability.
Quiet Vacuums = For a quieter vacuum, Miele vacuums are designed to be quieter than other brands of vacuums. They have power settings that lower motor noise, and are sound insulated. This is important so as not to disturb others, and your pets.
